Trina was my first BetterHelp.com therapist, and I liked her right away. She is a great listener, and is also encouraging and helpful. I've been seeing her weekly, biweekly, monthly...and all of it has been so helpful.

Trina is caring and understanding but tough when she needs to be. She approaches my concerns and issues from different directions and always has a good perspective. I stopped therapy for a while but after the holidays wanted to get back to it and was happy to return to Trina.

I did not have much time with Trina Dow, but the communication we did have was excellent. She was patient, listened to my concerns and definitely focused on helping me. I believe she truly cares about her patients.
